The truth is that a keratin treatment is actually the perfect accompaniment to your workout because it does to your hair what exercise does to our body: It makes it stronger.
Strong, Durable Hair
Keratin treatments help reduce frizz from your hair and help keep it straight. They use the same type of protein that is already found in your hair to reinforce your hair follicles, making them stronger, straighter and more durable.
Some women who work out a lot are concerned about the effects of sweat on keratin. Can it really wash out the keratin treatment that you invested your time and money getting at the salon?
The answer is “Yes”, but only for the first couple of days after your treatment. By day four or so, your keratin treatment will have completely set and will actually make your hair more versatile for the next several weeks.
There also are advanced treatments you can get that take only 24 hours to set. So if you are planning on hitting the gym soon after your keratin treatment, or you can’t afford to stay out of the gym for four days, ask your stylist about these formulas.
Once your keratin treatment is completely set, you don’t need to worry about the effects of sweating. When you work out, all you need to do is pull your hair into a ponytail or wear a headband to keep it out of your face.
The upside is that you will look better than ever, even when you are working out at the gym. And your sweaty hair will dry without frizzing, which makes keratin treatments ideal for women who like to work out a lot.
